>Part of the difficulty may be in how the music is composed.
Another solution is to create pieces that are not sweet-spot dependent. For my "N30: Live at the WTO Protest" piece I use a "primitive quad" a stereo pair in front (street sounds of the protest) and another discrete pair (censored and uncensored police transmissions) in the rear arranged in a square.
When advised beforehand, listeners can pick their mix. Another factor is seating; spacing the chairs adequately (often not the case in concert halls!) can subtly encourage listeners to orient their ears.
